  • Question

  • Hello, I have a Kinect sensor for windows without the XBOX logo. When I plug this one to my XBOX One nothing happens. I tried to go to devices and kinect menu. But I can't see the device there.

    Thanks in advance.

  • That is the main issue with the discontinued Kinect for Windows v2, you can't use it with an Xbox One when you decide to also target it with your app or game, not just Windows machines.

    So the only solution I can give you is to acquire another Kinect, specifically Kinect for Xbox One. On a positive note, you won't need the $50/€50 adapter and have to switch cables when deploying your project.
